Historical Artist - Thomas Brock (1847 - 1922)

Sir Thomas Brock was one of the most revered sculptors of monuments and statues during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His most famous work is the Queen Victoria Memorial completed in 1911 and located outside of Buckingham Palace in London. According to legend, at the unveiling in May 1911, George V was so moved by the excellence of the memorial that he called for a sword and knighted Brock on the spot. Other works include busts, such as those of Lord Leighton and Queen Victoria, statues, such as Sir Richard Owen and Henry Philpott, bishop of Worcester, and sepulchral monuments such as Lord Leighton in St Pauls Cathedral, a work of singular significance, refinement and beauty.
